How To Manage Your Online Reputation
Go ahead, Google yourself. Everyone else is. Whether you’re an adult or a teenager, what they find can affect your personal and professional life. Did you know employers and colleges search the internet for information about candidates before they make selection decisions? Here’s what you should do to protect your online reputation:

Find out what’s out there about you (or your company)…

Search your name on Google, but don’t forget Yahoo, Bing and Ask. Put quotation marks around your name, and use keywords (your city) to narrow the search. Try it with your nickname or middle initial.

Search again but click on “Images” and again on “Videos.”

Check alumni sites, genealogy sites etc. Ask your friends if you’re in a video they’ve uploaded to YouTube.

Be proactive about protecting your reputation…

Safeguard your personal information, particularly on social networking sites. Open a secondary email account or use a different persona for social sites, chatrooms, web forums, etc.

Use privacy settings to set the right level of control, especially for Facebook and MySpace. Don’t give access to “Everyone.” That makes it visible to search engines, too.

Set up a Google Profile. Go to http://www.google.com/profiles to build a personal page that helps people get the right information when they search your name. You can do the same thing on Yahoo at profiles.yahoo.com.

Monitor your online presence by signing up for Google or Yahoo Alerts. They’ll let you know if someone searches for certain phrases, such as your name or company name.

If you find something embarrassing, talk to the source. Even better, create positive content (write a blog or an article) that will appear on search results.

Will Aspirin Reduce Your Risk Of A Heart Attack?
You may have seen emails going around that talk about heart attack symptoms and the use of aspirin. The answer to the above question is “it depends.” Here are the facts:

Aspirin is a drug. Even though you can buy it over-the-counter at any drug store, aspirin is a drug that can mix badly with other medicines, vitamins or dietary supplements. If you’re already taking a medication or supplement to thin the blood, you should not add aspirin.

It may not be for everyone. The risks of long-term use may be greater than the benefits if there are no signs of, or risk factors for, heart or blood vessel disease.

Daily aspirin can be safest when prescribed by a medical professional. Aspirin has been known to help people who are living with some kinds of heart and blood vessel diseases. It can help prevent a heart attack or clot-related stroke by lowering the clotting action of the blood’s platelets. Your doctor, nurse or other health professional should decide if it’s right for you, depending on your health and medical history.

Dosage matters. There are no directions on the label for using aspirin to reduce the risk of heart attack. You must discuss the different forms of aspirin products with your doctor. When you buy a product, check the “Drug Facts” label for “active ingredients: aspirin” or “acetylsalicylic acid” at the dose your doctor prescribes.

If you feel symptoms of a heart attack or stroke, call 9-1-1 immediately. The operator, emergency medical technicians or Emergency Department physician will give you an aspirin if it’s right for you. To study the warning signs (chest pain, discomfort in other areas of the upper body, shortness of breath), go to the American Heart Association website at http://www.americanheart.org.

Trivia Challenge for the Month…
Last month’s question.

What country’s inhabitants have the longest average life expectancy (according to the U.S. government)?

a) Canada b) Macau c) Switzerland d) Singapore

The answer is b) Macau. The 2009 estimate of life expectancy in this region of China is 84.36 years, according to the CIA World Factbook. The U.S. is 49th at 78.11 years, and Canada is 7th at 81.23 years.
So, let’s move on to this month’s trivia question:

What was the first music video shown on MTV?

a. “You Better You Bet” by The Who
b. “Money For Nothing” by Dire Straits
c. “Video Killed The Radio Star” by the Buggles
d. “Hold On Loosely” by 38 Special

Brain Teaser Answer:
The dollar sign! FYI, it probably came from the Mexican or Spanish “P’s” for pesos, or piastres, or pieces of eight. Theory is the “S” came to be written over the “P,” developing the “$” mark.

Real Estate Q&A . . .
Q. Are Home Buyers Satisfied With New-Home Construction?

A. Yes, customer satisfaction with home builders and new-home quality has improved significantly, according to the J.D. Power and Associates 2009 U.S. New-Home Builder Customer Satisfaction Study.

Customer satisfaction in 2009 was up 32 points over 2008. Markets with the highest levels included Orange County/San Diego, CA; Sacramento, CA; Phoenix, AZ; Inland Empire, CA; and Tampa, FL. In fact, overall satisfaction increased in 22 of the 23 markets that were also surveyed in 2008. The importance of workmanship and materials factored high in the results.

J.D. Power and Associates attributes the improvements to fierce competition in the marketplace. They say this is great news for new-home buyers since builders are offering high levels of quality, value and service at relatively low prices. Because many builders have an inventory of homes completed, buyers can have a smoother experience with fewer delays.

For details on builder rankings in all 24 U.S. markets, go to: http://www.jdpower.com/homes.
